Why is my credit score important?

Credit scores are used by lenders to estimate the likelihood a person will make payments on time. You can obtain your credit score when you request your annual credit report. There will be a fee for providing your credit score. The higher your credit score the easier it is to obtain credit at a low interest rate.
